Attackers are using real browsers on infected computers to attack Web applications and bypass DDoS protection.

"I think we will continue to see an evolution in the sophistication of application-layer attacks and we will see more and more of them," Gaffan said. They won't replace network-layer attacks, but will be used in combination with them, he said.

In addition to that, they should perform security audits and performance tests for their Web applications to see what kind of damage an attacker could do to them, he said.
